Homemade Granola

IMG_2243

I love granola. Just love it. I’d been seeing on many blogs about how to make it and I felt like it was troublesome – and also figured that it would take a long time to make it taste good. However, my husband demolished half the batch, and he doesn’t even *like* granola. He kept …

Coconut Chicken Curry

IMG_0988

This recipe is by far my favorite one that I’ve made this last week; I ate way too much when I initially made it and also scored all the leftovers. It was the first time I had tried a casserole like dish with brown rice without cooking the rice first, and was amazed at how …

Maple Dijon Chicken

IMG_0974

This Maple Dijon Chicken is inspired quite thoroughly by the Maple Dijon Chicken on Stephanie O’Dea’s blog, but is quite different since I can’t leave anything alone! Ingredients: 4 -6 chicken thighs 1 cup chicken broth (I used homemade frozen) 1 onion, diced 2T stone ground dijon mustard (the kind with lots of seeds) 3T …

Sweet Potatoes

IMG_0982

This post might come across a bit simplistic, but to me it is the “only” way to cook a sweet potato. I might get convinced to try another method if you comment with why it works. For me, the only method to cook a sweet potato is in the oven, over high heat (or grill …

Spiced Spinach Chicken with Almonds (Dairy Free)

IMG_0925

I loved this meal. It was inspired by a few different sources, when I got desperate to use up my fresh spinach, which I purchased before going dairy free and wanted to initially use for spinach alfredo sauce. Ingredients: 1 lb skinless, bone in chicken thighs (this makes a lot of sauce if you use …

Applesauce

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to post – life got pretty crazy around here after I started working, and got the babies on the way. Every year that I can remember, in October we have gone to the Apple Harvest Festival and spent the weekend at Graves’ Mountain in Syria, …

Fantastic Florentine Scramble

IMG_0565

If you want me to order a menu item in a breakfast place (like Perkins, Denny’s) usually, you just have to add the word “Florentine” and I am all there, very fast. Friday for lunch, anticipating that dinner would not be fancy (the freezer cleanout day), I decided to make us fancy breakfast food – …

Splendid Spinach Salad

IMG_0577

I’ll say, when I decided that a daily blog post challenge would be a good thing, for the month of February, I didn’t realize how taxing it is to find that many unique things, especially making most of them recipes. Especially when… I don’t cook every day. Actually, when the husband is out of town, …

Glazed Chicken Drumsticks

IMG_0492

Earlier this week I was looking for something new to do, and had a lot of chicken drumsticks in the freezer from an earlier sale, but I had never cooked drumsticks before. I searched for tasty things to do with the drumsticks and found this recipe. I looked at recipes and saw it was on …

Moussaka

IMG_9626

Tonight I made one of my favorite “splurge” dinners. It’s not the most frugal, but it definitely beats restaurant pricing. The ingredients in my moussaka: 2 medium-large eggplants olive oil 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 large onion, diced 1/2 of a lemon, sliced very very thin 1 lb ground beef 1 stick of cinnamon (I …
